For February, we'll be bringing you a classic dessert favourite – chocolate fudge brownies.
And because chocolate is not enough, we'll be swirling these fudgy brownies with creamy peanut butter. The peanut butter adds a nutty flavour and a hint of saltiness to the brownie, giving it dimension.

These brownies have to-die-for shiny, slightly crisp and crackly tops after baking, and are delicious both freshly baked and chilled.
For these brownies, first you'll melt some butter with mini dark chocolate chips in a microwave or using a double boiler!
To set up a double boiler simply bring some water to a simmer in your sauce pot. Next, place a heatproof bowl over it, and pour your butter and chips into the bowl. The steam will help to melt the butter and chips! Make sure that your water is not touching the bottom of your bowl.
Next, whisk your eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla together until they turn slightly pale, and increase in volume.
After your chocolate-butter mixture has cooled, add it into your egg mixture and whisk away! You're one step closer to delicious brownie haven.
Then, sift in your dry ingredients, fold it in using a large spoon or spatula until you don't see any more flour. Resist the urge to stir it too vigorously - you don't want tough over-beaten brownies.
And now, here's for the fun part! After filling your pan, pipe yo' peanut butter in a zig-zag motion using the piping bag given. If there's any extra, just dribble the rest of it in, then take the skewer provided, poke it in, and move it in circular motions to create a swirl effect.
Pop the whole pan into the oven and voila! Brownies made from scratch, by you. Once it's out of the oven, let it cool for a bit before slicing & devouring them. Chill them in the fridge if you prefer your brownies with a fudge-like texture.
And there you have it, a beautiful pan of peanut butter swirled fudge brownies baked in your own home! Enjoy!
